It's all I have to bring today by Emily Dickinson | Poets.org
It's all I have to bring today
It's all I have to bring today--
This, and my heart beside--
This, and my heart, and all the fields--
And all the meadows wide--
Be sure you count--should I forget
Some one the sum could tell--
This, and my heart, and all the Bees
Which in the Clover dwell.
Emily Dickinson authored nearly 1,800 poems in her lifetime, most of which were published posthumously. She is considered to be one of America's most important poets. Dickinson was born in 1830 in Amherst, Massachusetts, and died in Amherst in 1886.
